Objects of Play

This Fall our theme is "Objects of Play" and we'll explore how play is infused in everyday and unusual objects become part of our interactions. We'll explore ideas of scale, basic shapes and structures that allow us to construct experiences around play.

Kids will explore this theme through a number of topics each week. From designing games for kids to toys for animals to games for adults, kids will be making and designing each week! In each Session, NuVu Coaches will frame the challenge within a larger topic and encourage kids to develop their ideas through an iterative process over the course of the activity. Throughout the program, kids will enhance their problem solving, collaboration and making skills, and with persistence, they will learn to think big and deeply about the world and people around them.

Students will have the opportunity to develop ideas using hands-on modeling and making. They will also learn to use software and fabrication tools that allow for prototyping and iterating to hone their unique designs. They will learn to constructively support each other’s projects and work together to create a series of storytelling adventures!
